IT’S party time! While you want to look your best, it’s important to also smell great.

Here’s our guide to the best scents.

A PERFUME FOR EVERY OCCASION

BLACK-TIE FORMAL EVENTS

Choose fragrances with a sense of depth and dignity. Look for scents

with woods, musks and spices.

WEDDINGS

Floral fragrances with ingredients like rose, lavender, jasmine, cherry

blossom and sandalwood work well.

FAMILY GET-TOGETHER

Choose scents that fully reflect your personality. Scents that combine grass can also be an excellent selection for family parties.

DECEMBER PARTIES

Perfumes with wood and spice bases are particularly suited to this time of the year. Look for a scent that blends notes of sandalwood with spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and

clove. Scents with a hint of vanilla can also be a good choice.

ROMANTIC DATES

Get an attractive fragrance that is not overwhelming. Look for scents with spicy notes of cinnamon, clove, or anise. The perfect scent sets the tone for a great date.

CASUAL BRAAIS

Choose a light, fresh scent. A simple floral scent with notes of rose,

jasmine or lavender can be the perfect choice, and the smell lingers

for hours.

DIFFERENT PERFUME OPTIONS

? EAU DE COLOGNE

This is lighter and refreshing and has elements of citrus oil.

? EAU DE TOILETTE

This is a slightly higher percentage of perfume oil, and is blended with alcohol instead of water. This adds more strength to the scent.

? EAU DE PARFUM

This is mixed with alcohol and has a bigger percentage of perfume oil. It’s heavier than eau de cologne and eau de toilette, but lighter than perfume.

? PERFUME

Perfume has the highest percentage of oil. Mixed with alcohol, it’s the most intense and powerful. This is the most expensive fragrance.
